Sabril/Potiga/Banzel
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am a teacher and they have to warn me when they are having any kind of drill. I find it unbelievable to know that schools have an alarm system with flashing strobe lights in a building full of kids and knowing that at the very least, 20 kids in the building have a seizure disorder. Any other opinions?
